Welcome, weirdos to the BrittNic Creations’ Horror Roundup! Each week I’ll be bringing you some news and products from the horror realm. The topics could include new clips from an upcoming horror film, gothic artwork, unique merchandise, and much more! There’s a mixture of horror goodies for everyone in the weekly Horror Roundup. This will always be a random post. I’d like to think that life and horror aren’t any fun without some absurdity included in them. Now, let’s get to the fun part!
‘Evil Dead Rise’ Waxwork Records LP & New Poster!
You’ll be able to listen to the tranquil…no, wait, the eerie and haunting sounds of Evil Dead Rise thanks to Waxwork Records unveiling their new LP for the film’s soundtrack. The Lee Cronin-directed horror film is now out in theaters for every fan and deadite to consume.
In a recent Instagram post, Waxwork Records announced that the soundtrack is now available to purchase on their site. Evil Dead Rise also recently received new artwork for a poster by Devon Whitehead as well as a poster by Creepy Duck Design. BossLogic on Twitter announced the unique poster filled with Deadites and Necronomicon horrors.
‘Iron Lung’ Teaser Trailer -Markiplier Involved
Mark Fischbach, a.k.a. Markiplier, recently released a teaser trailer on his YouTube channel for an upcoming adaptation of the horror video game, Iron Lung. The game was released in 2022 and was created by David Szymanski. Markiplier will be self-financing the adaptation for which he’s written the script and will soon direct as well. Markiplier is one of the largest and most popular YouTube “Let’s Play” channels with over 34 million subscribers.
His background and dive into horror games previously on his channel offer a lot of hope for those looking forward to this sort of adaptation. What many fans have wanted is coming true, he’ll not only be directing Iron Lung he’ll be starring in it as well. Production has already begun for the film in Austin, Texas and Caroline Rose Kaplan has joined to star in the submarine horror game adaptation.
‘The Third Saturday in October’ Trailers Unveiled
Trailers have been released for Dark Sky Films’ The Third Saturday in October Part 1 and The Third Saturday in October Part V. The films are directed by Jay Burleson. The first film takes place in October 1979. Ricky Dean is a man on a mission. Years ago, he lost a child at the hands of a psychopathic killer named Jakkariah Harding.
When Harding escapes Death Row, Ricky Dean throws himself into the line of fire to stop him from killing again as Harding preys upon a group of friends gathered to watch a college football game. An authentic throwback to the golden age of the slasher genre, the film is both a loving tribute to the films that created the horror franchises we know and love as well as an effectively creepy chiller for the modern age.
It’s Part V. Unstoppable killer Jakkariah “Jack” Harding is back in town after seven years, as he stalks and kills at random before chancing upon a football watch party. The game is, of course, between longstanding rivals the Alabama-Mobile Seahawks and Tennessee A&M Commonwealth. Chaos ensues, in an increasingly ridiculous fashion, with inventive murders and multiple love triangles. Hearts are broken and appendages are torn. Both parts will be released in theaters on May 5th.
Rattlehead Crafts -Terrifier Stickers, Horns & More!
I’ve recently discovered an account on Instagram, Rattlehead Crafts, a woman-owned business dedicated to horror-themed stickers, devil-horned hats, and more! I love seeing the variety of vintage horror influences and more in this creator’s artwork. Let’s support some awesomely horrific small businesses, shall we?
